Great service, fresh handmade pasta, very reasonably priced. Be prepared to wait over an hour to be seated. We went on a Tuesday and the restaurant was full and turning customers away at 7pm. Overall, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and service! Would definitely come back and try other dishes on the menu.
Worth every penny! You may have to queue for a bit or book and comeback but the food is great quality, with a real emphasis on the product! Portion sizes are adequate, some dishes are smaller than others, however the pricing is very reasonable with dishes ranging from £5-£14. My only criticism is the wine could be slightly cheaper!
Yes, it does live up to the hype. The gnocchi is glorious. Please order it, it’s the best £4 you will ever spend. I have been hoping to get a table here for about 2 years. Finally managed to get a table for lunch and it was worth the wait. I recommend ordering 3 plates between 2 of you (if you can bare to share!)
I finally got a table during the last 30 minutes of lunch. I tried 4 of the main dishes, in some sort of tasting menu. All sauces were delicious and quite unique: anchovies in one, pesto in the other, nutmeg in the third and lemon butter for the stuffed pasta. The serving size is not to share. For example, there are 6 ravioli in that dish. The gnocchi is slightly larger but definitely for one guest. We were 2 sharing and it was just perfect for lunch. Yes, the line is discouraging but so worth the reward. The only disappointing thing was the tiny can of soft drink, way smaller than the average can and at almost the same price of one of the exquisite dishes. But, given the art of their cooking, it is just a side note for you, the next guest.
Oh, you don't hate pasta? Visit Padella. Full stop. Phenomenally tasty fresh made pasta. It was all delicious and worth the wait in the queue. So good, in fact, that my wife went back for lunch a second day just to get her pasta fix while she was still in London. I had to fly out a day early or I would have been there again as well! The nutmeg brown butter gnocchi was glorious, and with a pinch of extra salt it really brought out the flavor of the nutmeg.
